But that doesn't mean I can't cook like it's still summer. You know - not turning the stove on & so forth.
I almost made up a recipe tonight. Not surprisingly the inspiration came from Pinterest. I think. I can't find the Pin now, but I haven't had an original idea since I joined the site. So, I'm guessing.
Here it is:
I'm calling it "Not so Pokey Tuna Bowl". Here's what I did:
- 1 large can albacore tuna, drained
- 2 medium avocado, chopped
- 1/2 English cucumber, seeded & chopped
- ~1/2 bunch green onions, chopped
- 1 large mango, peeled & chopped
I piled all that in a bowl. A pretty one, because I felt like it. S&P on top. Then I made a quick dressing in a separate bowl:
- 1 tsp garlic powder (because I couldn't find the chopped cloves)
- 1/2 tsp dry ginger
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp soy sauce (light, because I have it)
- 1 TBSP canola oil
I whisked together & drizzled over. Gently combine the salad ingredients with a wooden spoon. I served it with a few whole grain Scoops.
In case you don't get the pun ... a Poke bowl is a popular dish in Hawaii. It has raw sushi-grade tuna, rather than the Charlie variety. Also it was not pokey at all; it came together rather quickly.
The Hubben loved it. The Munchkin. Well, she liked the avocado & chips. Her cup'o'PB was a much bigger hit over the weekend.
That's fine, kiddo. Momma's looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Light, refreshing, a little exotic. Yum onward, my friends!
